Well well well, don’t get your hopes up! Yes, below we’ll show you how to install Siri on your iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G but you won’t be able to use it. Just like all hackers who ported Siri on older devices, you’ll only get Siri GUI on an iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G and other devices running iOS 5.
You’ll need to download some extracted files from the iPhone 4S. You’ll surely need to put them on your iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G, iPod touch 3G to be able to get the GUI.
Again, it’s just the GUI and you won’t be able to talk to Siri since it won’t be connected to Apple’s servers. Also please note that we’ve tried the method and it’s working.
DISCLAIMER: CydiaHelp is not to be held responsible for any loss of data as a result of the malfunctioning of your device in the following of this guide. Follow at your own risk.
- Siri files extracted from an iPhone 4S. We can’t post it here.
- OpenSSH and iFile that can be found on Cydia.
- SFTP client (WinSCP for Windows and CyberDuck for Mac OS X).
- Jailbroken device running iOS 5 public release only (download here).
STEP 1: Extract the files attached in “Siri.zip” downloaded above.
STEP 2: Now open your SFTP client (WinSCP in this guide), write down the required info.
Host name:<type the IP address of your network from the WiFi settings on your iPhone>
STEP 3: Now open the following directory and copy AssistantServices.framework which can be found in the extracted files you have downloaded.
STEP 4: Now head to the below directory and copy all files found in SpringBoard_Assistant_pics folder.
STEP 5: Once done, get on your iPhone and open iFile and get to the same directory of the previous step. You’ll find a file named N90AP.plist for iPhone or N81AP.plist for iPod touch. Tap on that file, edit it and type this:
STEP 6: Finally give your device a “reboot” not “respring” and you’ll get Siri GUI. Just hold down the home button and you’ll get it.
If Siri GUI didn’t appear after the above steps, then you may want to try this AssistantServices.framework instead of the one in STEP 3.
For the last time, you won’t be able to talk to Siri. Just the GUI (graphical interface) of Siri. We’ve posted this guide for anyone interested in trying this.

UPDATE: Well, we’ve good news for you! Some hackers could be able to get Siri connected to Apple’s servers on iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G. Yes, that’s right but this guide above won’t let you do that. It’s the GUI only. The tool or jailbreak tweak that will Siri connect to Apple’s servers should come out shortly. Better wait a bit.
